Mary Berry and John Foss, Sr.

Mary Berry17 8th Great Grandmother
Born 1641, Portsmouth, Rockingham, New Hampshire130
Died between 1706-1710, Rye, Rockingham, New Hampshire
Parents William Berry, Jane Hermes
Notes Mary witnessed her sister Rachel's will in 1706/07 but was not mentioned in her husband's will dated September 13, 1710. Her birth date is an estimate based on the facts that she was the fourth child, that children were typically born at approximately two-year intervals, and that her marriage year was about 1659.17

William Berry and Jane Hermes

William Berry17 9th Great Grandfather
Born 1610, Lancashire, New Castel, England130
Died June 28, 1654, Portsmouth, Rockingham, New Hampshire
Parents (Probable) Johan Berry, ---
Notes He settled at Strawberry Bank which includes what is now Portsmouth, Rye, Newcastle, Newington and Greenland in about 1631. There were local names applied to certain portions of the territory which are in some instances still retained. William is said to have been the first settler in the present town of Rye. He lived at a place called Sandy Beach. He was one of the grantees of Newbury, Massachusetts and had probably moved there previous to 1643. In 1640, he joined with others in the conveyance of a glebe at Portsmouth.17

He was one of the fifty odd men sent over by Captain John Mason to settle his grant of land (after his division with Georges, embraced most of the present state of New Hampshire). These men were landed on the west side of the mouth of the Piscataqua river in 1631. There are reasons for supposing that William Berry was at this time a young man, though whether he was married in England or after his arrival in this country, we have not been able to ascertain.

Jane Hermes (aka Hermins)17 Married: 1635, Portsmouth, Rockingham, New Hampshire130
Born about 1619, Yorkshire, England

Notes Jane also married Ensign Nathaniel Drake87, about 1655, Rye, Rockingham, New Hampshire, son of Robert Drake and Jane.

Jane’s surname (Hermes or Hermins) is questionable.
